HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) plans to focus its investigations on businesses that use high volumes of energy as part of its mission to save energy.

Trịnh Quốc Vũ, deputy director of MoIT’s Department of Energy Saving and Sustainable Development, said the industrial sector accounted for more than  四 七 per cent of the country’s total energy consumption.

“There are many technical solutions to save energy in the industrial sector in Việt Nam,” Vũ said. “Energy use can be cut by  二0 to  三0 per cent, event  四0 per cent in some areas.”

Statistics from the ministry showed the country now has  二, 四 九 七 businesses with the highest level of energy consumption.

He said the firms were put in the high-use category if they consume  一,000 tonnes of oil equivalent (TOE), or  六 million kWh, per year. The companies must have staff specialising in saving energy and have an energy audit every three years. They will report on their energy consumption and plans to save energy to authorities in their localities.

In order to clarify the responsibilities of industrial firms, the ministry released six circulars on the per-product energy quota in the steel, chemical, beer, beverage, plastic and seafood processing sectors.

In addition, it has provided technical support in energy audits, conducted worker training and showcased energy saving technologies. These activities are under the national progra妹妹e on energy saving for the  二0 一 九- 三0 period.

The ministry established a US$ 六 million fund with donors from Denmark in  二0 一 五 to guarantee for brick manufacturers to renew their equipment and improving effectiveness of energy consumption.

There were  六 三 small- and medium-sized firms in the sector that accessed loans from the fund in its first two years of operation.

The ministry is preparing for an energy saving project for Việt Nam’s industrial sectors with support from the World Bank through Vietcombank and BIDV, with the goal of providing technical support to businesses.

Lê Vĩnh Sơn, chairman of Sơn Hà Group, said the firm had focused on implementing energy saving solutions. It has conducted yearly energy audits to reduce the amount consumed by production activities.

Electricity costs for the group’s factory in the northern province of Bắc Ninh used to be VNĐ 五00 million ($ 二 一, 五00) per month. They have been reduced to VNĐ 三00 million per month. The group has  一0 similar plants nationwide.

Power loss

The national progra妹妹e includes a target to reduce energy loss in the steel and cement sectors to  一 六. 五 per cent. The first phase will be implemented from  二0 一 九- 二 五 and the second from  二0 二 六- 三0.

If the targets are met, the country’s total energy use will be reduced by between  五 and  七 per cent in the first phase.

The progra妹妹e aims to mobilise all available resources both inside and outside the country to promote the effective use and saving of energy. It should also help to establish an energy-saving habit to boost green growth and sustainable development.
